Thanks, best wishes, Coach McCauley
Kokomo boys basketball coach Brian McCauley shocked the Wildkat faithful recently with an announcement that he had accepted the position as head coach of the Noblesville Millers boys basketball program.
This was a gut-wrenching decision for Coach McCauley. Having been a life-long Wildkat fan and a three-year starter for the Wildkats, being named head coach was a dream come true.
We all face forks in the road of life, and Coach McCauley is doing what he thinks is best for himself and his family.
It is the dream of every high school basketball coach in the state of Indiana to win a state championship. The Wildkats fell just one victory short of reaching that pinnacle in the 2010-11 season, as they lost to a very good Bloomington South team and finished as Class 4A state runners-up with a 23-3 record.
Coach McCauley was most deservingly named the North Central Conference coach of the year.
I had the privilege of working several Kokomo Wildkat boys basketball camps under the direction and dedication of coach Brian McCauley. Coach McCauley is a master of encouragement through the power of positive thinking.
He consistently promotes sportsmanship and positive attitudes both on the court and in the classroom. His players and students are better prepared for life and, because of his leadership, feel more confident and better about themselves at the end of the day.
Coach Brian McCauley will be successful wherever he teaches and coaches. So as he takes this fork in the road, I personally and on behalf of all Kokomo Wildkat fans want to wish him all the best and say, thank you, coach.

Abortion must be abolished overnight
Some thoughts on abolitionism:
Immediatism is our call and cry! Not our time frame, expectation or prediction. We call abortion a national sin and demand its total and immediate abolition. This is our conviction. Our call. Our cry. And our understanding of what must be done and said if we are ever to remove this abomination from its state of approval and prevalent practice within our country.
